On the Spacecraft (1968) (Part 2)
Part 2 of my post on this colorfully illustrated book. I find the colors and illustration style of this book really unique.
See part 1 here:
On the spacecraft. Painted by Stakhursky. Poland: Zaklady Graficzne. 22 cm. 134 p.
The mechanical device see almost surreal and I have never seen a "space dog" anywhere that was as strange as this.
The beautiful weirdness just goes on and on.
I am not sure if these are supposed to be androids or just heavily modified humans.
Exploration of alien worlds seems to include meeting aliens themselves.
The books ends on a realistic note showing some of the actual planned spacecraft on both the Russian and U.S. sides of the space race. I hope you enjoyed these illustrations, I am glad I had a chance to share such great bits of imagination.
